How can I stop my toddler from sucking her fingers?

mine does this too she turns 3 in january. maybe just try keeping her nails clipped pretty good, i check my daughters every other day just to make sure they aren’t sharp, it’s a comfort thing for her.

Good luck…I even went a far as having spikes put in his mouth…didnt stop him 13 is when he finally stopped

They grow out of it normally. My sister used to suck on her fingers, and eventually she stopped.

Finger and thumb sucking is a self-comforting activity. Let her be and don’t fuss over it, you’re just adding to her anxiety. Keep her nails short and give her plenty of hugs & positive reinforcement for other things she does well. She’ll outgrow it eventually.

Keep her nails short and leave her be x
